Bavaria

Has anybody fish this lake during the winter? I have taken some nice crappies in the spring near the landing. Caught some nice size Northerns also and caught a 6' ugly stick with real.

Bavaria isn't real well known for being an ice fishing lake. I have also taken decent crappies and sunfish from the lake. It's just not a very good ice fishing lake for me at least.

We fishd Bavaria this summer and NOTHING but tiny sunfish. Sounds like we should give the bay near the landing a try in the spring though...

Havent seen anybody really out there but when i drove by there today i saw there was a permanent right on the west end of the lake. I am not sure how longs he's been out there but i dont think its been out there more than a week. The owner was just driving off as i pulled into the access but i didnt have a chance to chat with him. I was on my way home from another lake but i just couldnt resist the chance to hop down there and fish it so i grabbed the locator the hand auger and a rod and walked out in front of the access. Drilled in 19 fow and dropped the jig down. It only took a few seconds to spot a few fish come off the bottom and take a wiff. After missing a couple i pulled it up and it was just a dinky sunfish. So i just moved out deeper and didnt have any luck in 30 fow. Then went into 9 fow on the weed edge and gave it a few minutes with no luck so i just packed up becuase i had to get home. I was only there about 20 min and maybe if i would have stuck around i would have caught something decent.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?
